In a Christian Post article that published today, entitled, “Cassidy Exclusive: Rapper Using Mainstream Hip Hop to Bring Salvation to Masses?” Cassidy discussed his upcoming EP with Philadelphia-based Pastor Jomo K. Johnson.

Cassidy told The Christian Post that he felt compelled to become more vocal about his relationship with God after overcoming the two significant events.

“When I came from jail and recovered from the accident I definitely felt obligated to talk about my relationship with God because that’s the only way that I could make it through those situations that I was in. That’s why I did the album B.A.R.S and did a lot of songs like ‘Done 4 Me’ and ‘Leanin’ on the Lord’ with Angie Stone,” Cassidy told CP of his decision to feature faith-based songs on his mainstream rap release in 2007. “I just wanted to show people that you can come from the streets, you can be around a lot of different things but still have a relationship with God and be an artist and talk about it.”

Still, the rapper, who has deemed himself “Da Hustla,” admits that it is not easy to be a Christian rapper who also appeals to people from the streets like where he comes from.

“It’s kind of hard because a lot of people in the world know me for what I used to be and love my music and respect me for that. So you don’t want to lose fans, but there are also a lot of people that love me because I’m going in the direction of the lord,” Cassidy revealed to CP. “It’s hard to balance it out but I try to to the best of my ability. Another thing I don’t want to do is at this particular point do all records about the lord or go completely in the direction of lets say certain gospel singers or things like that.”
